I still have this original cookbook!!
This was given to me by a good friend that has since passed on; I love the recipes, have used them a lot over the years, especially the cake and bread ones.

We think my grandma had this cookbook
The foreward to the Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book of 1950 mentions this book as its predecessor. My mother and I believe my grandma had and used this cookbook, and remember its brown cover. Thanks to archive.com, I'm able to read its actual contents. It's a hoot to see recipes that start out with killing a turtle or chicken before cooking it! But the many of recipes for breads and salads etc. are still viable today, and I've been actually using some!

wish I still had
I had an original issue of this cookbook from my Grandma. Lost in the floods of 2008 but glad to know there is some where I can still get chuckles at how recipes were written back in the early 1900s!
